A CELESTIAL blue or French grey silk skirt, buttoned and trimmed down the front with a full border of lace, gathered on a plain heading, terminating at the bottom with a deep flounce of the same; high-drawn body, made either of sarsnet or India muslin; long full sleeve, confined at the wrist by a bracelet of blue satin bead and emerald clasp. Lace ruff round the neck.
A net handkerchief crossed over the bosom and tied in bows behind.
Full-bordered lace cap, ornamented with a small wreath of flowers on one side.
A French straw bonnet, lined with white sarsnet, and trimmed round the edge with a narrow quilling of net lace; a small plume of ostrich feathers in the centre of the crown. Sandals of blue kid. Gloves, York tan or Limerick.
Sandals in October. A bit nippy on the toes I must say. And what is the idea of the handkerchief? Support?
Until Next Time......
